New details have been revealed in regards to the Fair Fight and Punk Buster features for the upcoming multiplatform video game, “Battlefield 4.” According to a report by Tom’s Hardware on Sept. 28, Karl Magnus Troedsson stated that the aforementioned elements are used together in order to prevent cheating in the online multiplayer mode of the first-person shooter.
The general manager of Digital Illusions Creative Entertainment disclosed that information from both can be viewed from the browser on the Battlelog service. Furthermore, players may be able to get a notification on the in-game chat box whenever a cheater gets caught. You can check out several screenshots from the fourth main “Battlefield” video game in the slideshow near the top of this article as well as the comments from Karl Magnus Troedsson in regards to the Fair Fight and Punk Buster below (courtesy of Tom’s Hardware):
During the Beta we will try out both FairFight and PunkBuster to make the experience as good as possible for our players. You will notice information about the two anti-cheat measures on the server browser pages on Battlelog, and you will also potentially see messaging in the chat box in-game when a cheater is caught. We will get back to you later with more detail on how we are improving our anti-cheat measures in Battlefield 4.
Players will be able to see the Fair Fight and Punk Buster features in action with the multiplayer beta, which is slated to launch for select qualified players on Oct. 1. An open play test is being planned for Oct. 4. The multiplayer beta is only available for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the first-person shooter.
